AMPS Jargon Buster. Explaining key terms for specifiers and end users.

The no-nonsense guide to generating sets for specifiers, students and engineers.

Acronyms can be confusing, that’s why here at AMPS (The Association of Manufacturers of Power Generating Systems) we’re endeavouring to make our critical – though sometimes bewildering – area of expertise as understandable and accessible as possible.

Wherever power is needed off-grid you need a power generating set, and wherever you need a generating set you need experts to design, manufacture and maintain it. It is these experts that constitute AMPS, and they come together to offer a trusted source of expertise and advice, as well as a proven supply list of generating-set industry based companies. So whether you call it a generating set, a generator or even a ‘Jennie’, we can help you get the information and support you need.

And to make things even clearer, we have created the AMPS ‘Jargon Buster’. 
This no-nonsense guide will help you and your business in navigating the technical terminology of the Generating Set industry, providing an accessible reference you’re sure to return to again and again. Getting hold of a copy is as straightforward as our definitions

 And if you need more information there is list of FAQs on our website as well as opportunities to ask an AMPS expert, one of our technical committee specialists.
